Area 1 is the first stage from Super Aleste.
This stage takes place above the Amazon Rainforest on South America, where the Super Aleste first comes in contact with the Sphere's forces.
Being the first stage, the player mostly faces weak flying enemies and turrets attached to the floating structures. At some points the player must hit the red targets on the bridges connecting the structures in order to open the way, as well as open paths through destructible bricks. At some points large orange spheres detach from the floating structures and track down the player, though these can be destroyed.
